Wyatt, 1933-1999, at the Gatlinburg Tennessee museum c. 1995
Ron was the most humble, God-fearing man I have ever met. He was not
interested in fame or fortune. He was only interested in doing the Lord's will.
He made great money as a nurse anesthetist, but gave most of it to this work,
including traveling overseas 130 times. When he would run out of money overseas,
he would head back to his job and earn more money to fund his work for the Lord.
He lived in a duplex in Nashville during most of his work, desiring to spend his
money working for the Lord, instead of on a beautiful home. In 1977, when the
Lord was showing Ron that He had a job for him to do, Ron sold his farm
and used that money for this work. He did not have health or life insurance, as he
would give the money he would spend on insurance premiums to the Lord's work.
Biblical archaeologists are rare these days as most of the learned archaeological
world reject a good portion of the Bible. Hershel Shanks, editor of the Biblical
Archaeology Review, stated that most archaeologists do not believe in the Exodus
of Moses. How could we then look to these men for the answers we are looking
for in biblical archaeology?
When brother Ron was with us, he would always stress the necessity of becoming
a follower of Jesus and obeying His commandments. He was a devout student of
the Bible, while retaining an extremely humble attitude. Sadly, Ron died in 1999.
His death was noted in The Tennessean on August 5, 1999.
World Net Daily interviewed him when he was on his deathbed, and he confirmed
that he had in fact found the Ark of the Covenant, as noted in this article:

Ron's dining room consisted of bookcases filled with research books, copy
machine, and various office tools. No fine china display case here, folks.
